My time with Elizabeth Mears has certainly become addictive! I have a hard time being away from her.
Here is my progress as of last night. The sampler is much prettier in "real life" than it appears here. I used the thread and linen colors that Barbara specified on the chart. I'm afraid that the colors in my photo need a little "tweeking".
I've temporarily put Elizabeth aside to work on a new model, but I'm looking forward to spending time again with her in the not too distant future.
We're looking forward to our annual New Year's Day dinner of black-eyed peas with ham hocks served on a bed of rice. We'll make some cornbread too. This year we're using a new recipe--Tom's brother's recipe which is cooked in a cast iron skillet.
Don't forget to eat your black-eyed peas today so you too will have lots of luck during the coming year. Did you know that Cracker Barrel restaurant serves them to everyone on New Year's Day--even if you don't order them. Guess they figure that everyone should have some today.
Hope that the new year is off to a terrific start for you!!
